Lighthouse show shines brightly



Great photos and excellent conversation about lighthouses entertained and educated the Tuesday afternoon audience. Presenter and photographer, Barb Knibbs, enlightened listeners on the beauty and usefulness of lighthouses. It was a great program.

Happy Birthday Townsend Schultz!


When Townsend Schultz turned four, he asked his friends to come to a birthday party and bring books as gifts, which he would donate to the library, so that many children could enjoy them. Because The Barney Library is his neighborhood library, Townsend presented the books to Branch Librarian Kathy Lescoe. Now Townsend's book donations will be the gift that keeps on giving, as children read, learn and laugh through the wonder of books. Thank you Townsend!

Somewhere Over The Rainbow


Children in The Barney Library's Pre-school Story Hour created rainbows this week, as the bright side to all the rainy weather. After sharing stories of the colorful, magical phenomena, frisky fingers fashioned Fruit Loop designs, practicing sorting skills, glueing, and tasting.
